(MADISON, WI) – The Hartwig campaign has been notified of two separate ethics complaints filed against Sarah for Wisconsin.
The first complaint alleges Sarah Godlewski “Knowingly and willingly violated Wisconsin’s prohibition on electioneering” by campaigning for additional votes outside of her polling location on August 14, 2018.
The second complaint alleges Sarah Godlewski violated campaign finance law by accepting a campaign contribution of $150,000 from an individual contributor. State of Wisconsin law mandates contribution limits of $20,000 for the State Treasurer’s race. It appears this contribution has since been amended, changing the name of the contributor to the candidate. Which begs the question “Who signed the check and actually made this contribution?”
“I am not sure if Sarah is unaware of the laws here in Wisconsin after living out of state until this spring, or if she just thinks that she is above the law.” said Hartwig. “But Wisconsinites deserve better than Sarah Godlewski.”
So far in the race for State Treasurer, Sarah has done very little to earn the trust of voters. She has actively mislead voters about her residency, hosted lavish out-of-state fund raisers for special interests groups and campaigned on a pledge to invest our schools trust funds in riskier investments.
“Sarah’s behavior reflects the Washington D.C. swamp that she is from” said Hartwig. “She has pushed the limits of our campaign finance system and has violated basic electioneering laws.”
Hartwig, who grew up in East Troy, WI, holds a double major in Finance and Business Economics from Carroll University. He was a Mutual Fund Administrator at U.S. Bank Fund Services in downtown Milwaukee and owns a home in Oak Creek, WI.
Travis Hartwig is running for State Treasurer as a life-long conservative that believes Wisconsin taxpayers need a watchdog. He will use his experience to make the office more efficient and find ways to cut government spending because he believes that you do a better job of spending your hard-earned money than the government does
